2011 Turkish GP team review
Rubens Barrichello ran in the top ten early on in the Turkish Grand Prix, but dropped back with a KERS problem.
|Rubens Barrichello||Pastor Maldonado|
|Qualifying time comparison (Q2)||1’26.764 (-0.472)||1’27.236|
Williams drivers’ lap times throughout the race (in seconds):
Having been the last man through into Q2 Barrichello only missed out on a place in the final ten by two-hundredths of a second.
He moved up to ninth at the start but KERS cooling problems left him vulnerable and Nick Heidfeld overtook him.
Powerless to defend, he was passed by Heidfeld (again), Vitaly Petrov and Felipe Massa on consecutive laps at one point.
Spun twice in the wet first practice session and went off twice again on Friday afternoon, damaging the front of the car in one spin at turn eight.
Qualified 14th and struggled with oversteer during the race. Was happier on the hard tyres later in the race but a pit-lane speeding penalty left him 17th.
